AST 2199 - Duel with the Palace Lord of the Blazing Sun Immortal Palace
Upon hearing Qing Shui’s words, Lie Hunren looked at him as though he were a clown: “Young man, talking like this proves nothing. Let me see if you’re the real deal or not.”
As he finished saying this, he stepped towards Qing Shui.
Qing Shui felt a strong pressure coming at him as he moved, as though there was really something between the two of them.
By this time, Qing Shui had already brought his strength up to maximum, using all his formations and the Battle God Halo. He knew that this time he had met someone who was truly powerful, and one slip up would be costly.
“Not bad, young man. Let’s see what you can do against my attacks.”
Lie Hunren reached out and attacked Qing Shui with what seemed like a little volcano. It had the top full of fire, and was powerful enough to burn the souls of people. The volcano was also very strong in attack power.
A veteran would be able to tell how dangerous it was by reaching out. This simple motion explained the power behind it.
Nine Continents Mountain!
As Qing Shui reached out, the Nine Continents Mountain in front of him went towards the little volcano.
The attack power of the Nine Continents Mountain had already reached 27 billion Dao, and on top of that, it had the strength of the shield attack. Even if it wasn’t a true shield attack, it could diminish some of the attack power of the opposing force. If it were actually a true shield attack, it would completely suppress its attack power.
The chance that the Nine Continents Mountain would be able to completely nullify the opposing attack was low, but the shield attack was still there, about 20 to 30 percent, and could nullify another 20 to 30 percent of the enemy’s attack during this fluctuating time. But even with that, the Nine Continents Mountain was beaten away by the little volcano.
Although it was beaten away, the power that the little volcano had been left with wasn’t much and under it, the large red Demonic Vines wrapped around the little volcano had disappeared in a bit.
Bloodthirsty Demonic Vines!
The main purpose of the Bloodthirsty Demonic Vines was pestering strength, toughness, and sturdiness. Its attack power was secondary. Furthermore, it had sharp and menacing bloodthirsty spikes. The Bloodthirsty Demonic Vines were very different from before, their power incomparable to the past.
When Lie Hunren saw that his own little volcano had dissipated, he couldn’t help but look at Qing Shui. This young man’s strength wasn’t too bad, and wasn’t just all talk. Unfortunately, he wasn’t of his family, and was even an enemy, so he couldn’t let him go.
When this thought came out, it was like a seed sprouting its roots, continuously growing. This prompted Lie Hunren to quickly make a decision.
Qing Shui felt a surge of killing intent. He didn’t think that the palace lord of the Blazing Fire Immortal Palace would want to kill him. However, this killing intent was real and extremely intense.
Qing Shui clenched his two fists together, then used the Diamond White Tiger King. He then afterward also used the Dragon Spider, the Buddha Diamond Seal, and without batting an eye, put a Buddha Wisdom Seal on Lie Hunren.
He unleashed the power of the Divine Weapon Flying Sword. This way, he could minimize the damage to the people around, increasing their vitality.
“I see. You’re trying to use those two Beasts to control me. Funny.” Lie Hunren looked at Qing Shui without a trace of dismay.
Art of Pursuing, Emperor’s Qi!
Qing Shui waved his hand and attacked with two crippling strikes, which made Lie Hunren slightly shiver. A dark colored light flashed, increasing his strength a decent amount. However, it wasn’t for recovery, but only a temporary boost.
Qing Shui smiled, and as his hand moved, another white light surrounded Lie Hunren.
In this instant, a large amount of strength that was increased was cut in half.
Lie Hunren moved. He knew that he needed to get rid of this young man even more.
Buddha Bright Seal.
The first to strike was the one with the advantage. Qing Shui also didn’t want to be careless and immediately used the Buddha Bright Seal and Stellar Transposition.
While the Stellar Transposition was still very menacing, Qing Shui was thinking of using the Buddha Bright Seal to make his opponent become disoriented for a bit, lowering his opponent’s strength, while further increasing his own attack.
The Stellar Transposition bypassed defense, so Qing Shui had no idea what to suppose in the end.
What surprised Qing Shui was that this Buddha Bright Seal had a strong effect on Lie Hunren. Last time, when he was fighting the Demon Gate Junior Sect Master, his opponent had Demon Shadow Splitting so he wasn’t sure whether this Lie Hunren took the attack on purpose or not. He decided not to think about it anymore.
The Stellar Transposition hit Lie Hunren’s body, blowing him away with a trail of fresh blood coming from his mouth.
Seeing this, Qing Shui knew that Lie Hunren had actually been hit by him. Still, that guy’s resistance was very strong. He didn’t even think about preparing defenses against an attack that would bypass them, which meant that the only thing left was his own life force. The stronger the life force, the less of an effect the attack would have and the quicker it would be to recover from.
It seemed that this Lie Hunren’s life force was pretty strong. Qing Shui’s Stellar Transposition wasn’t anything weak. Even though it had not reached 70 billion Dao, it had the defense bypass power of about 10 billion, which was enough to injure his opponent.
All in all, his strength had been crippled a little, and now it was just enough for Qing Shui to have an effect on him. Actually, Lie Hunren’s power now wasn’t too low, but it also was enough to delay the fight. Of course, his strength would also continue to diminish as the fight went on.
The way the Lie Hunren was looking at Qing Shui was just like that of a devil. A large blade of fire appeared in his hand, and he suddenly rushed towards Qing Shui; his speed enough for people’s hairs to stand on end.
Qing Shui’s heart jumped, then quickly used Windwhisk Willow.
This move had alarmed Qing Shui, because the Nine Palace Steps and Windwhisk Willow that he had combined had reached a bottleneck, unable to thoroughly combine. At this moment, however, he found that he had burst through the bottleneck like window paper. They had managed to combine perfectly and allowed him to dodge Lie Hunren’s vicious blade.
Lie Hunren’s eyes turned red. Someone had evaded it. Someone had evaded his own blade. He couldn’t figure out what that young guy’s movement technique was either, which was too weird.
Qing Shui seemed to have gone completely into his own world. He didn’t have a weapon in his hand because he knew that it wouldn’t matter even if he did have one. He continuously dodged, using the Buddha Bright Seal and Gouging Strike every now and then, along with the Dragon-capturing Hands, and didn’t dare use anything else against a person of Lie Hunren’s caliber. It was already too risky in close range. One misstep would spell his end even if he had a stronger defense.
Beihuang Fan and the rest of the people were watching Qing Shui’s movements, themselves also stunned. Those movements were too peculiar. They could see that Qing Shui was using Windwhisk Willow, but it seemed to be even stronger than usual.
Lie Hunren felt an unmatched gloom. This young man had such a strange movement. It was way too scary, making him think that this guy had some weird feeling to it. Qing Shui had Windwhisk Willow, and now it had been combined with the Nine Palace Steps. Meanwhile, Lie Hunren’s strength did not lie with his speed, which was now halved. Even if he struck out with strength, he couldn’t hit his target, which was the power of speed.
Lie Hunren was the Palace Lord of the Blazing Fire Immortal Palace but he appeared so powerless in front of many people. When he was starting to be angered by this fact, Qing Shui moved his hand again.
A white shadow came out, directly striking Lie Hunren’s body.
Without knowing that a while had passed once more, Qing Shui was able to use his Stellar Transposition again.
